Two more poems preview for "Growing Strong in The Lord - part one"

Hi guys, 
Here two more poems from the "Growing Strong in The Lord" two book collection. Still presenting previews from part one, I Am Sowed, By God’s Words. These two poems remind us not to judge others; in particular the poor. "For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." (Matthew 7:1-2). Anyone can go from being well-off to being poor in an instant. Some have the misconception that if one is poor it is of their own doings. That's not always true! There are many circumstances where one can not help one's financial status. Perhaps, God does watch how we treat, not only the poor, but everyone in His righteous judgment. But, in particular, how we treat the poor. 

Through The Eyes of The Poor

For in this world of riches one hides

But through the eyes of the poor

Is mostly where the Lord decides

As to what they see does adhere

To the judgement He provides

In them He becomes their savior

Because in this world the rich resides

Where the poor in their clutches a snare

Then the devil does show the rich insides

One cannot hide through the eyes of the poor

Thoughts: Simple, it's through the eyes of the poor where one is judged. "The poor and the oppressor have this in common: The Lord gives light to the eyes of both" (Prov. 29:13. NKJV). One needs to be careful how they treat the poor least you be judged. "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you" (Matt. 7: 1. NKJV). In today's society due the riches that society strives, it's the poor that will inherit the kingdom; thus, give the poor their due respect. "Blessed are the poor, For yours is the kingdom of God" (Luke 6: 20. NKJV). Simple, perhaps judgment is through the eyes of the poor!

Power of The Poor

Sometimes the poor know not their power
As to where it comes one will be amaze
The Lord will give them their hour

As Matthew followed, the Pharisees did cower
Then they were left in a great daze
Cause, sometime the poor know not their power

Those exalting self, the Lord will disfavor
Because in the world it's money they praise
But, the Lord will give the poor their hour

For it's the poor He does greatly empower
His earthly family poor when he was raise
Sometimes the poor know not their power

Although this world the poor does devour
His love to them He gives in many ways
For the Lord does give the poor their hour

To the poor He does give great power
For through them His character conveys
As most times the poor know not their power
But the Lord will give to the poor their hour

Thoughts: Some don't realize the power they have when poor. The Lord was born a carpenters’ son; thus, poor or mostly poor. He also inducted mostly the poor as disciples. The Lord loves the poor and did not like rich pious people. Mostly because their worship was of riches in emphases. "And again, I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19:24. NKJV). He loves the humble and lowly. The Pharisees, the religious leaders in Jesus time, held themselves as higher than others and worshiped themselves because of their position. When Jesus inducted Matthew as His follower, He was put down by the Pharisees as inducting a sinner and were praising themselves as better due their pious positions. But Jesus had this to say to them   "And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted" (Matt. 23:12. NKJV). There is power in being poor due the poor's position in life and the Lord's love for the poor. As a follower of Jesus Christ, one being poor holds great power.
